Now that NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden is en route to Ecuador for political asylum, there is a real danger the U.S. government will try to grab him under the guise of law enforcement.

Duh, I axed him to cease listening to sociopaths in the US govt and military,

I also droned on about the US Constitution and ethics,

and finally, shot out a big hello to the NSA staff at the end of my letter.

Edward Snowden's method may not have been the wisest.

The wisest methods don't always work!

Sorry Nancy, I would have signed if it generated from C2. C2 has already connected be to enough organizations for protection of wildlife, deforestation, humanity, environmental & humane treatment. I do not care to part of political organizations such as Roots Action and Avaaz. I am trying to limit the govt's, Big Eye on me.
Noted, but, not Signed onto Roots Action Org.

Petition signed.

Former VP Dick Cheney recently came out and said that Snowden is a traitor.
If anyone is a traitor, former VP Dick Cheney is more of a traitor than Snowden will ever be.
Both Cheney and Bush should be tried as war criminals in the Hague and Spanish Courts.

Ty, Nancy.

Thanks Nancy. This seems to be US only, there is no country box.

Russell, that's just weird.

I don't know this site, RootsAction, but I'll look into it. But of all the activist sites out there, Avaaz is probably the most effective, and it has absolutely nothing to do with any governments at all. It is a grassroots organisation, member funded. And they surely do a great job fighting big business and government snooping and interference.

Their petitions are way more effective than Care2's because they follow up on them and take action themselves. And they don't change them after you've signed them either, which Care2 still allows petition starters to do.

Best to read up about these things before you give out totally wrong information that might put others off.

Happily signed! Snowden is a hero. Too bad the shills in the corporate media (I'm looking at YOU, David Gregory) are too chicken to take such measures.

signed. he did nothing wrong. If someone is a terrorist or a threat they've ALWAYS been able to take action through proper channels.

Why is he a traitor for speaking out about something he believed in in that what the USA were doing was wrong
They should leave him alone and stop hounding him and stop spying on people as well

"I thought you folks LOVED Obama. What happened?"

He started acting like a republican. That's what an intrusive fascist media will do to you.

What happened to you?
